about

Among the 600 foreigners jailed in the 'Bangkok Hilton', one man resolves to do what no other has done: Escape. This is the true story of drug smuggler David McMillan's perilous break-out from Thailand's most notorious prison. After more than a year in prison and two weeks before a near-certain death sentence, McMillan escapes, never to be seen in Thailand again.
David McMillan (London, England) masterminded a heroin-smuggling syndicate worth millions of dollars and planned numerous escape attempts from prisons around the world, before retiring in the late 1990s to London.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Escape Reading this story after previously reading another prison escape book - The Auschwitz Escape by Joel Rosenberg I can't help but compare. This being a true story and Auschwitz not although based on true facts, I felt total empathy for the characters and their undeserved misery and torture. On the other hand, in contrast, i felt nothing for 'David' in his prison stituation as it was totally deserved. How many years and how many prison sentences does it take for a man to realise its mugs game and life is too short and too precious to gamble with in this way. Is money really more important than freedom. Obviously David McMillan thought so. I wonder if any Auschwitz prisoners would agree? I found this book hard to read because I simply didnt care if David escaped or not. My only slight interest was in how he did it and that came in the last few pages.

Editorial Reviews

The true account of McMillan's escape from Bangkok's infamous Klong Prem prison reads better than any thriller.
